Hello all. I'm new here. Can't believe people still post on a forum about a 6 year old game. I've done a search, but I don't think anyone else has this "problem". Basically, when I throw a grenade or cast a wide area spell into a mixed group of both friends and foes, only the enemies take damage, my followers don't. It works with just about all area effects: all grenades, Fireflash, that raining ice spell I can't remember the name of, even dynamite and plastique. As you can imagine, this makes grenades the perfect weapon for tech characters. One thing I like to do with magick characters is cast Shield of Protection on myself and run into the middle of a group of enemies. When they surround me, I just take them all out with 1 or 2 Fireflashes. It can't possibly be this way by design. I mean, it's bad enough grenades don't cost any AP to throw, now they're all "smart-bombs" to boot? Yes, I am patched to v1074. Oh, and what followers have interesting plot/side quests/conversations with each other/other characters? The obvious ones are Virgil, Magnus, Loghaire, and Raven. Are there any others?
